Fact of the Day: Lady Sarah Lennox

Lady Sarah Lennox was a British noble who a young King George III had fallen in-love with. Many had thought she'd become Queen, but the King's advisers had eventually destroyed any chance of marriage between the two. Lady Sarah Lennox wasn't too bitter about it "Luckily for me, I did not love him, and only liked him".

Lucky Sarah! Maybe she didn't want to be a "breeding cow"??
George sired 15 kids!!!
Or she had a premonition that poor Old Georgie would lose the American colonies and end up mad.
I think she was pretty lucky.

Update on SYDNEY to HOBART.
1. Seems that the fish in the southern Pacific will be well fed, heaps of sea sick sailors on the yachts.
2. Comanche(US)has a reasonable lead over the other US maxi,
Rambler 88 with the Italian yacht, Masarati, coming at them.
Comanche had a playful large whale have a good look at it,
thankfully the whale decided it had other things to do and decided that nudging games were not on - ha ha.
It is the migratory time for the whales going north from the South Pole region to "mate".
3. The 4 leading yachts are about to enter the Derwent River for the hard slog up to the finishing line - 50 miles to go,
